Find the latest announcements and launches from the Linked Learning Alliance here—plus reflections and insights about what’s happening across the field.
Last week, the U.S. Department of Education (ED) released the ED COVID-19 Handbook: Roadmap to Reopening Safely and Meeting all Students’ Needs. The Linked Learning Alliance is pleased that Linked Learning was included as a strategy for accelerating learning as students return to in-person instruction.
Today the California State University Board of Trustees selected Joseph Castro to lead the California State University (CSU) system. The Linked Learning Alliance applauds the Board for selecting a strong advocate for California’s students. In a time defined by sweeping challenges and change, we are heartened to see a bold and proven leader poised to guide the nation’s largest public university system.
It is with profound soundness that we share with the Linked Learning field news about the passing of Joan Bissell, one of our greatest leaders and champions, on September 11, 2020. Joan leaves a legacy that will continue to have a lasting impact on students’ lives - the future leaders of California and our nation.
Last week, the Linked Learning Alliance in partnership with Envision Learning Partners had the opportunity to sit down with two educators from Pasadena Unified School District to learn more about the virtual portfolio defense process taking place at their schools. We were joined by Sara Scribner, librarian at Marshall Fundamental School and Jim Goffred, librarian at Blair High School.
